Like many cities country wide Boston has its own First Night celebrations. The 2017 festivities were great fun despite the seasonally cold weather. I suggest you park in the suburbs like we did and take the T into town. There are several fireworks shows, one over the common at 7:00 pm and one over the harbor at midnight. Most of the activities revolve around Copley Square and the Back Bay. There is a parade down Boylston Street, an ice sculpture display and entertainment both inside and out. 2017 was great try to catch the 2018 First Night.
